Holistic Pediatric Dentistry in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey
Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes — including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food — are to blame. Hypo generalization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay. The purpose of pediatric wellness is to prevent dental disease in children.
Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:
- Baby teeth versus adult teeth
- Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns
- Contra-lateral tooth patterns
- Decay clustering
- Post-eruption susceptibility
A Paediatric dental wellness program helps your child to learn the lessons of proper health maintenance and nutritional habits that prevent dental disease. You can bring your child for his or her first dental exam after all the baby teeth are in — generally, between ages three and five.
Dr. Philip Memoli and his staff are ready to repair the damage caused by childhood dental problems and ensure that our Pediatric patients are committed to maintaining healthy teeth as they grow.
